started the fire instead of trying to put the fire out. >> we tried to get change cpi, and harry reid took it off the table. and the president claims he wants change cpi, but is harry reid more powerful than barack obama? >> that's a good question. >> no, it's not. no, harry reid is not a more powerful guy. but i do agree in the end, if the president will stop demagoguing, and if he'll stop running a presidential campaign, a permanent campaign that david brooks is talking about, al, i think you're right. i think the president, at the end, may actually make some decisions that will upset his own base, change cpi, on hopefully -- hopefully he won't take paul krugman's position and say we'll worry about medicare in 2025 when it starts to melt down. hopefully he'll be a little more responsible than that. i think he will. >> yes. >> but the problem, i think, goes back to mika's point. in all of the attacking the president, he has a plan on the table. you can say is demagoguing. the revenues that he's putting on the table from the taxes add up. the republicans have just come back saying, we're n
the most extreme element in their own party through the primary processes, and that's why harry reid right now is running the senate. >> but there are -- i mean, you saw the front page of the business section of "the new york times" yesterday. there are people who want these assault weapons, and they're selling off the shelves at twice the price. twice the price. i was online looking at guns. it's unbelievable how they're marketed. people like them. people in america feel they need these multiple -- what's that? >> did you buy one? >> no, i was just trying to understand. i personally don't get it. but there is -- it's not just an extreme fringe tiny bit of society. there are people out there who support this. >> i tell you what. >> in our society. >> there aren't enough of those people out there that feel like they have to have an assault weapon to carry presidential elections or senate elections. >> there's enough to make gun manufacturers a lot of money, to make the gun lobby powerful, to make people like wayne la bpie e pierre -- >> think about the money he makes by ginning up fear in a
agenda than he has been using for other parts of the bill. that could be if senator harry reid's argument -- that is essentially dead on arrival anyway. >> if diane feinstein doesn't have the assault weapons at least let her have an opportunity to offer this amendment. >> will you vote for it? >> i don't know, frankly -- and she knows i didn't read her amendment. i didn't vote for the assault weapons last time because it didn't make sense, but i'll take a look at it. >> joining me now to take a look at it. editor for the new republic, good to see you, my friend. >> thanks for having me on the show, ezra. >> so that didn't sound enormously encouraging from harry reid, kind of sounded like the assault weapons ban will get a bit of a pro forma vote and that is about it. >> i think everybody knew going into the fight the different elements of the gun legislation agenda, that the assault weapons ban would be one that had the hardest road ahead. in part because you know you still need 60 votes to pass anything in the senate. and in part because the republicans control the house. and in part bec
democrat in the senate harry reid declared just a few weeks ago the democrats would not change the rules in the senate? remember that? wouldn't change the rules. to stop senate republicans from abusing the process there. harry reid decided he would just instead make a hand shake deal with the republicans' top senator mitch mcconnell. he said he was satisfied with the republicans agreeing to be more reasonable on issues like this. remember? they wouldn't change b the filibuster rules. they would just agree as gentlemen that the republicans would curtail of excesses of filibustering everything. democrats decided to not only change the rules on the filibuster and just make that agreement with the republicans instead. they said, you know, at a minimum this would at least improve the confirmation process for the administration's nominees. how's that working out now? just a couple of weeks later. how's that gentlemen's agreement going? now that we've just had a filibuster of a cabinet nominee for the first time in american history. joining us now is andrea mitchell. great to have you here toni
-- >> if you were harry reid and you work with him and the democrats, would you encourage him to expose people like mark pryor down in arkansas and max baucus out in montana? would you ask them to vote on an assault weapons ban? >> i think harry reid will give them the same advice i give them in private which is when you agree with the president, you should say so. and when you disagree with the president -- >> don't buckle from pressure from the white house. >> we have seen mark pryor has come out in opposition. i suspect you will see a couple others, but i would just juxtapose that against what's happening on the other side. the reason we're starting in the senate first is because john boehner and the leaders on the house side can't get anything done. they can't get a majority of their own party to support the speaker's own -- >> do you realize how their strategy could work. you and the senate will be the first cut. you are the first guys going over the top in world war 1 blowing the whistles, cutting through the con ser tina wire. you guys could get mowed down. i'm thinking about pryor, beg
with harry reid. >> should the president turn his bus around? we report. you decide. >>steve: turn the bus around or turn the beat around? >>brian: one was al roker's book and one was the 1970's hit. >>steve: the president tells the press out with you's. >> look forward to our partnering. with that, what i want to do is clear out the press so we can take some questions. all right? >>brian: fantastic. goodbye, ed henry. there is one way to hear what he has to say. a little bit later you're going to ask some questions and i'll leave. the picture you didn't see from the first lady's oscar appearance. who decided she needed to cover up and get some sleeves and a higher neckline? "fox & friends" starts now. >>steve: welcome board to the tv barn, everybody. what does that mean? [mooing] >>brian: steve was recruited off the future farmers of america's rosters. >>steve: i was back in the day. >>gretchen: are you from kansas? >>steve: yes, i'm from kansas. >>alisyn: i didn't know you are on some sort of farmer's bulletin board. >>brian: then you married kathy, a city girl and brought her to the cou
was serious, he'd sit down with harry reid and begin to address our problems. >> you know, willie, it strikes me not only the white house but liberals for a decade now have said if republicans were serious about the deficit, they would cut defense spending and they would come forward with tax increases. well, it looks like, as mike was talking about yesterday in this new york article, republicans are going to come forward and let these defense cuts go through. so republicans will, over the past three months compromise in defense spending and compromise in tax increases. so i think it's fair at this point to say, mr. president, show us your hand, because this is what we've been hearing for a decade. taxes have gone up and now we're going to cut pretty significantly from the pentagon's budget. your move, mr. president. >> he wants revenues to go up again and john boehner's response is, we just did that. >> that's the thing. we always heard, you guys raise taxes, cut defense spending and then we will come back with a compromise on spending cuts. but, no, we raise taxes, we come forward with pent
. nonetheless, harry reid, given the fact that we're facing that looming deadline on friday, he says the republicans can fix it all if they do the one thing they absolutely won't do, which makes this impossible, and that is jack up taxes. >> those cuts will go forward. they are all cuts. i think we need some revenue to take the pressure off everybody. the american people agree with me. until there's some agreement on revenue, i believe we should go ahead with the sequester. >>gretchen: it's interesting because the president talks about compromise. i know time goes by fast. but the republicans just did compromise and they did raise taxes. in fact, everyone's taxes went up because you're all paying social security again now. the tax-free holiday is gone. it's amazing to me that this messaging is still out there, that this is all about taxes. by the way, senator reid, americans don't agree with you totally. here's a rasmussen poll. the best way to slash the deficit, reduce taxes alone, only 6%. reduce by cutting spending: 45%. a combination, more spending cuts than tax hikes: 36%. >>st
whether i vote for that budget or vote against that budget. the fact that harry reid's senate and that harry reid himself has gotten in the way of a former really good budget chairman not passing a budget is shameful. and now you have the president saying, well, i'm against the sequester cuts. well, okay, great. what are you going to replace them with? i don't know. no specifics. they never give specifics. >> so i don't know, because i was working on my column and talking to a couple different people in the white house yesterday. and they were talking about the president's statement yesterday. and he is saying to republicans, come meet with him. anytime. they can come right now. and he will work on a deal. it can be a smaller deal if we can't make the sequestration deadline. and it can involve spending and revenue and a mix, and that they haven't taken their toys and walked away. they've offered $400 billion in health care cuts and other things. the republicans have other ideas, come on over to the white house. put them on the table. let's make a small deal. if we can't get to
republicans passed so many things that just never see the light of day. and harry reid's senate. but the way things used to work, you used to pass things in the house, and then the senate would pass things. and then when harold and i at least were in washington in the '90s, then you go to conference committee, and they battle it out. that doesn't happen if harry reid doesn't pass things in the senate. he is the president's pocket veto. >> the step you're missing in that is -- and kevin mccarthy's interview proves that denial is not simply a river in egypt -- there's no conference committee. >> can i -- hold on. hold on. >> that's a good one. that was so fancy. >> is not just a river in egypt. >> that's what he does now. >> that's something brad pitt would say in one of those chanel ads. >> let's call brad. >> standing against the wall wearing nothing. >> he's wearing the sweater. >> go like this. >> you can't get away with saying things like that on this show. >> i want to hear his vision. >> why? more "morning joe." >> i know you're way above the cliche. i'm sorry. >> stupid cliche. >> what
in the past. so i don't -- you know, the story of the last two years is that, you know, john boehner, harry reid, barack obama, always find some way to pull a deal out of the fire. so it would be silly to bet against that, but i agree with charles. it's harder in this case to see -- i think you can draw it up on paper, but it's harder to see where the parties come together. the reasonable thing to do would be to say, let's cut the amount we're going to be spending in half and let's agree on doing a little means testing to medicare, which they're both in favor of and let's not get so focused on absolute dollar figures. >> the clock is ticking. gloria, appreciate it, charles and ross, thank you. >> a family lost at sea off the coast of san francisco, and a murder trial making the casey anthony look, well, boring. x-rated evidence, too many lies to count, plus a defendant who won a singing contest from prison. it's all bizarre. we'll be right back. concerns as we age. it has 7 antioxidants to support cell health. one a day men's 50+. i have to know the weather patterns. i upgraded to the new s
of representatives, went over to the senate and unfortunately harry reid not only didn't vote on the house version but the senate hasn't put forward its own proposal. i would encourage the president to work with harry reid and senate democrats to put forward their own alternative and hopefully go to conference and negotiate something between the house and the senate because both sides agree that it's better to use a scalpel than a hatchet. >> you're describing something there's just no way is going to be done in 48 hours so as much as you're optimistic -- >> i'm noptimistic. >> that's charming. >> chris frates with "national journal." i have a story the republican leadership wants to see if the sky falls, they will need to negotiate on sequester, if the cuts are not that bad they think they get some leverage and can roll the debate on the across-the-board spending cuts into a larger one about the debt ceiling this summer. is that a prudent way for house republicans to go forward on this, taking a wait and see? shouldn't your leaders be showing more leadership here? >> well i'm not sure that wait a
secretary is facing a potential republican filibuster which prompted harry reid to force a vote tomorrow to end the debate over whether to confirm hagel. rand paul telling cnn they need to hold democrats to a higher standard here. >> if they're got -- >> hagel's nomination made it out of the armed services committee on a party line vote. >>> general john allen may withdraw his nomination to become the supreme allied commander of nato. in fact, a staff member's written statement indicates he is considering taking a brake to reunite with his family, maybe even possibly retire. general allen spent 1 months directing nato forces against taliban insurgents. last year embarrassing e-mails with jill kelly came to light during cia director's sex scandal. >>> there was emphasis on the staging. students here are actually on winter break this week. the principal e-mailed parents offering a one-day experience mimicking a normal school day to coincide with the president's visit. >> if you're in preschool i bet you don't mind seeing the president. it's not a hardship to spend a day with the president.
majority leader harry reid trying to break up the filibuster, scheduled to end the debate tomorrow. democrats need 60 votes to overcome a filibuster. republican senator rand paul tolder inburnett he takes this is appropriate. >> if they're not going to give us the information the only way to get the information is to threaten to hold them to a higher standard of 60 votes. >> this is fairly unprecedented, a filibuster on a defense nominee, but hagel's nomination is scheduled for a vote tomorrow. >>> this just in to cnn, warren buffett is getting into the ketchup business apparently. buffe buffett's berkshire hath awaway with 3g capital are buying the ketchup maker for the low, low price of $28 billion. lot of ketchup, a big business deal. mayor michael bloomberg set to unveil his latest green initiative, a war on plastic foam. bloomberg will propose a city wide ban on plastic foam food packaging, in his final state of the city speech, part of an effort to increase the city's recycling rate. the mayor conquered transfats and is fighting against super sized sodas. >> no big shock on t

. >> harry reid hasn't passed a budget in almost four years. >> can i just make a pitch for blaming the american people? >> sure, go ahead. >> just to wrap up, i mean, the reason that we have these divisions in washington in part is because the american people really, really, really want spending cuts right up until they see what the spending cuts actually are. and so it's not just that our politicians are letting us down, they're responsive to public opinion and public opinion likes fiscal discipline more in theory than in practice. >> we'll button up this segment by -- >> maimi inblaming americans. >> no, we want to foe on to twitter and facebook. who do you believe when it comes to forced spending cuts? jackie says the bunl the nedget be cut and the cuts are a pittance. this from lee, it's time for republicans to admit they are obstructing. hoping to p hoping to put the blame on the president, but it's not working. next talk back question, is it wrong to end telecommuting? ♪ ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] what's the point of an epa estimated 42 miles per gallon if the miles aren't
conversation with harry reid, senator reid, the majority leader the week before. our members want us to have cuts and reforms that put us on a path to balance the budget over the next ten years. that's what we want. and that's a tall order. >> okay, so where do things stand in boehner is not meeting with democratic leaders or the president and the senate, it's about to begin debate under proposal to avert spending cuts but that's expected to go exactly nowhere. chief national correspondent john king is here, hi, john. >> carol -- >> i was going to say maybe dennis rodman should have gone to capitol hill instead of north korea. >> i know dennis rodman because i'm a basketball fan and washington is broken, i'm not sure it's quite ready for dennis rodman yet but you just heard speaker boehner that's important because he's not only talking about his broad principles but listen to what he said, in the past crises, we're having a conversation wednesday morning. in the past, six months ago, six months before that, because we keep having these if it's a friday deadline it's around wednesday morning
the day he got in the senate, he was bored. harry reid said, you don't like it here, you're bored here. why don't you run for president? >> he was considerably more politic about how he spent his short time in the senate. >> talking about barack obama's pathway he wasn't worried about that, he wasn't worried about building bridges, right? >> no, but he found a way to get along with his fellow senators as did hillary clinton who came along having greater ambitions, but careful to go step by step and not to seem bigger for her britches than she wanted to seem. >> this is an odd way to last in washington. we'll see how he does. >> lindsey graham said you get respect in the senate if you can throw a punch and you have to show you can make a deal. ted cruz has thrown lots of punches and hasn't shown he can legislate or endure. this remains to be seen. >>> and at the white house to deliver remarks on billions of dollars on automatic budget cuts set to kick in next friday. according to administration officials, the president will challenge republicans to make a quote simple choice between pro
a, quote, filibuster. it won't be a filibuster, but they're forcing harry reid to basically go and get 60 votes to confirm hagel. >> why is that? >> why are they doing it? >> why the change? why the change of heart? >> well, i think mccain has gone back and forth. i think at the beginning he suggested that he might try to block hagel's nomination. then he defended him the other day when the criticism really got out of bounds. and now he's back to saying he may try to block it. but it feels like reid will get his 60 votes. >> he's going to, but willie, they keep going back to benghazi. by the way, listen, we've said here clearly the white house screwed up, the state department screwed up, it was hillary clinton's low point. they asked for security in benghazi. they didn't get it. the ambassador asked for help. he didn't get it. what does that have to do with chuck hagel? >> well, john mccain has been trying to get answers from the white house about benghazi. i think he sees this as a moment of leverage now. he can hold this up. he's got a bunch of republican senators who will fo
't gotten anything with harry reid that can pass in the senate. he said i'm going to put it on congress to try to come up with plan, what he calls a balanced plan for more revenue as well as additional spending cuts. and from that conversation earlier that i had with alan simpson and erskine bowles, i heard from them both sides need to have pressure applied on them, the white house thinks we don't need as many cuts as simpson and bowles do and the president is saying no more revenue, and simpson and bowles saying, no, we need more revenue. today they even set a bar higher than they had in their commission report for additional deficit reduction. i asked them how can you ask for more when we haven't even gotten what you originally recommended. here's how they responded. >> well, we learned the hard way with our commission. the tougher we made it, the more support we got. either go big or go only home. >> we're going to have to push the white house on health care, we're going to have to push the republicans on revenue. >> go big or go home, that's their mantra. we'll see whether congress
senate and harry reid is in no position to point fingers at people for inaction, right? >> we ought to pass a budget and we're going to pass a budget this year. but let's also lack at the fact that there's not a single plan out there. i've been involved in every one of these bipartisan plans that hasn't said, you need about, on the minimum, about $1.2 trillion if you're going to do a new revenue, if you're going to do a $4 trillion deficit reduction plan. i'm all for believing we have boot got to do more entitlement reform, but we have to do more revenues as well. and opposed to going through all of these stupid cuts, not only have we heard about 750,000 lost jobs, but in certain cases, we'll cost the taxpayers money. when we buy ten tanks, we get a volume discount. we'll break those contracts. when you do four years of cancer research, and don't get the first three years, you'll flush that. that's less meat and eggs going to the grocery store, driving up grocery prices. this was set up to be the stupidest of all options. whoever dreamed it up, who knows at this point, but at this p
